Beautiful Transkei

The Transkei stole my heart! With its vast and beautiful landscapes, grass fields, mountains and valleys it is an absolute feast to the eyes.

The funny, in a way pretty little houses of the residents will make beautiful picturesque portraits.

Pity though that where ever you look, the land is over populated and over grazed by the locals and their animals and erosion makes painful marks in the soil.

However, the locals are very friendly and always willing to guide you in the right direction.

Sad was the day when we had to leave the Sunshine Coast for the cold and windy Port Elizabeth.

But do remember, whenever you travel through the Transkei, make sure to carry a wholly lot of sweets for the children!
